Thanks for your kind review. There is lots to do in Mossel Bay and many of our guests use it as a base to explore neighbouring towns like Oudshoorn which is less than 1 hour away, Wilderness or Sedgefield. Stunning walks along this scenic coastline,...More

Thank you so much for your stunning review. We try very hard to please our guests and I am glad we succeeded!

It was a wonderful cottage, incredibly decorated, had a character about it, passionately done by new owner Jacqui who we had a chance of meeting. Everything about this place is just perfect. It's a gem.
